South Park is one of the greatest television shows in history, hands down. And even when this season was thrown for a bit of a loop because of the surprise election of Donald Trump, Matt Stone and Trey Parker continued to do a really good job of rolling with the punches and keeping the narrative going. But we digress…
Even though South Park opens with the whole “All characters and events in this show–even those based on real people–are entirely fictional. All celebrity voices are impersonated… poorly” spiel, sometimes the braver celebrities come on the show to make fun of themselves. And by sometimes, we mean very rarely. Like less than ten times in total.
So this past week (Season 20, Episode 8), when Elon Musk appeared on the show, I thought to myself that the voice impersonation was too good. Musk’s character had appeared on the show before, in the “Handicar” episode, but back then Trey Parker was the one doing the voice. In “Members Only” the voice was spot on. I thought there might have been a chance that he actually appeared on the show himself.
And whaddya know. He did! Check out the credits below, via Uproxx:
Musk is always busy. So even when he’s not figuring out how to get to Mars or put lasers on the heads of friggin sharks, the world’s #1 big idea guy is meeting up with Matt and Trey and voicing a part for their TV show. And if they get to microdose with LSD along the way, all the better.
